Protect People with Serious Mental Illness from the Death Penalty
Science tells us that serious mental illness is as impactful on our minds and bodies as any physical illness, such as heart disease and cancer. Unfortunately, this understanding often fails to extend to the criminal justice system.
It is unjust to execute someone who could not appreciate the wrongfulness of their actions, who could neither make rational decisions nor conform his or her conduct to the law.
